cities, including pittsburgh and new york. man: new york city went to philadelphia and said, "you know, we're thinking of developing a hudson river water supply -- what do you suggest we do?" and they said, "we've had "a lot of problems on the schuylkill. "don't go to the hudson river. go to the upland and work by gravity." and that's what new york city did. they first went to the hudson highlands, but 150 years later, it went to the delaware highlands. and really diverted the water that normally went to philadelphia to new york city. i don't think they anticipated that. narrator: the majority of new york city's drinking water comes from watersheds in upstate new york. a watershed is the area of land where water from rain or snow melt drains downhill into a body of water. mountains act as a funnel to feed rivers and lakes. and in this case, reservoirs. in the new york city system, water is collected and stored in 19 reservoirs, which can hold more than a year's supply -- over 580 billion gallons of water. almost all of the system is fed by gravity, without the use of energy-consuming p
that he and his brother decided after the boston bombings that they would go to new york city to party. however, a subsequent questioning of dzhokhar revealed that he and his brother decided spontaneously on times square as a target. they would drive to times square that same night. they discussed this while driving around in a mercedes suv that they had hijacked after they shot and killed an m.i.t. police officer in cambridge, dzhokhar said. that plan, however, fell apart when they realized that the vehicle that they hijacked was low on gas and ordered the driver to stop at a nearby gas station. the driver used the opportunity to escape and call the police. that eventually led to the shootout in watertown, where the older brother was killed in an exchange with gunfire with the police. up until that point, the two brothers had at their disposal six improvised explosive devices. one was a pressure cooker bomb, similar to the two that had exploded at the marathon. the other five were pipe bombs. we know that dzhokhar was photographed in times square with friends on or before april 18th o

/11, the new york city hydrogen peroxide bomb, there was a bomb in a backpack pakistpacked with fishing weights. it was discovered before it went off. there was the guy strapped with explosives who stormed the discovery channel in maryland. he was killed by police. the attempted underwear bomber, shoe bomber. there have been lots of attempts to bomb the u.s., but almost no successful bombing attacks, one in which the explosives actually detonated and caused the intended damaged. there was a small homemade bomb in wisconsin last year. it broke up the window sill. a mail bomb sent to the university in scottsdale, arizona in 2004. it hurt the man who was the sbepded target, but other than those, attempts at setting off bombs in the united states since 9/11, there have been a lot f tries, but they have almost never been successful. an uncomfortably large number of people, almost nobody pulls it. does it say something important about the person or persons who bombed the boston marathon, that they were able to successfully detonate bombs when almost every other plot in recent years has been tharted?
of officials that cnn personnel have talked to, law enforcement officials as well as city officials in new york, city officials now believe the bombing suspects intended to go to new york, not just to party as police commissioner ray kelly had indicated yesterday, by also perhaps to try to set off whatever remaining devices they had in times square. again, we've heard this now from congressman peter king who says he has talked to a number of law enforcement officials in the city of new york. and that is their understanding or interpretation of the comments being made by dzhokhar tsarnaev. again, we don't have a transcript of what he said. so this is the interpretation we're getting from congressman king. it's also based on gloria borger's reporting based on two officials that she has spoken to. we are awaiting as you see what will be statements being made by new york mayor michael bloomberg and police commissioner ray kelly. it's going to be made in that room you see on the side of your screen there. we're of course going to bring that to you as soon as it starts. want to give you all the lates

're always very mindful of that, as is the fact that new york city is always the number one targets. the fact that boston was hit here just opens it up to a whole new city. it's very, very tragic. but again, to pick the time when multiple people were finishing going across the finish line to simultaneously detonate as we've seen in these horrific pictures that we have such graphic photos of people literally being blown up, limbs being blown off, it is a real tragic day. one thing that's for certain, we will find the people who did this and we will bring them to justice. >> it does run the spectrum, though. as much as it may have similarities to the new york city subway plot, you also have images of the 1996 olympic park bombing and what that person, eric robert rudolph, had in his mind. so you can run the gamut on possible systems behind this, right? >> sure. this is so close to the event that when i talk to law enforcement, f.b.i., those on the ground, you really can't jump to conclusions right now because you tonight know what the final answer is here. but we do know two bombs were detonate

an additional democrat -- for a possible run for mayor of new york city. mr. smith talked through the arrangement over a lunch of fried meat balls at enzo's. today, it was not fried meat balls, but it was a shared arrangement between senator smith and the republicans who he thought could get him on the ballot as a republican to run for new york city mayor. see, there are a lot more democrats than there are republicans in new york city, so it is a tried and true method to become a republican, specifically for the purpose of running for new york city mayor. it means you don't have a difficult primary, right? you have an easier primary if you're running as a republican than if you were running on the democratic side. that's how mike bloomberg got the job in the first place, then once he was in, he ran as a republican, then dropped the republican label and became an independent. but if you are a registered democrat and you want to pull this, you want to appear listed as a republican on the ballot in a new york city election. what you need is a majority of republicans in the city to si
